Three members of a Wilmington street gang involved in a deadly feud with rival gangsters in 2010 have been sentenced to prison.

A judge on Wednesday sentenced Kevin Rasin to life without parole for the murder of 25-year-old Jose Charriez, who was shot as he sat in a car at a stoplight.

Rasin was a member of an urban gang called the Trapstars. Charriez was with a rival gang called Pope's Group.

Two other Trapstars members also were sentenced Wednesday. Marc Taylor, whose convictions include assault, gun charges and cocaine possession, was sentenced to 15-1/2 years. Terrence Mills, who pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the killing of 20-year-old Alvan Butcher, another Pope's member, was sentenced to 16 years.

Five other Trapstars members were sentenced previously, and another is awaiting sentencing.
